Pack a spicy punch with a pinch of ground cayenne pepper... Made from dried hot red chili peppers, cayenne pepper is a medium hot seasoning usually rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units. Cayenne pepper is an important ingredient in cuisine the world over. Use it to make a hot salsa, spicy soup, or blazing house sauce for hot wings. Red Pepper (Cayenne) is the ripened, dried pod of the Capsicum Frutescens. The capsicum family of spices includes sweet, or bell, pepper, paprika and jalapeno chilies. Used when "heat" is desired, the dried pepper is available ground or whole. The color is an orange red to deep red and capsaicin is the main constituent producing the hot taste. It is a good all “around cayenne pepper” and it has a great flavor profile. Our cayenne peppers are grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides, and nothing is added before or after drying. This spice is grown, dried and packaged and from the current growing season.
